Original recipe makes 2 -8x4 inch loaves

  •  3 zucchinis
  •  1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  •  2 1/4 cups sifted unbleached all-purpose flour
  •  2 teaspoons baking soda
  •  1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  •  1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  •  3 eggs
  •  1 1/3 cups white sugar
  •  1 cup vegetable oil
  •  2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  •  1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
  •  1 cup golden raisins


  1. Soak raisins in warm water for 30 minutes. Drain thoroughly in a colander or strainer; set aside.
  2. Clean the zucchini and trim off the ends. Do not peel. Shred with a medium sized shredder. You should have about 4 cups when finished. Sprinkle the zucchini with 1 teaspoon of the salt and place on a plate. Mix it with your hands to evenly distribute the salt. Place a heavy saucepan on top of the zucchini and allow it to sit for 20 minutes to purge itself of liquid.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8x4 inch loaf pans and set aside.
  4. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the flour. Sift together the remaining flour, soda, spices, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  5. Beat eggs on medium speed for about 3 minutes. Add the sugar, a little at a time and beat for a good 5 minutes. The mixture should be light in color and thick. While beating, slowly pour in the oil.
  6. Empty the zucchini into a colander and squeeze to release the juices.
  7. Add the vanilla to the beating eggs and then add in the zucchini. Add the dry ingredients, a little at a time and mix just until the dry ingredients are mixed in. Do not overmix.
  8. In a small bowl combine the remaining 2 tablespoons flour, nuts, and drained raisins, and mix together to coat. Fold into the batter. Pour into the prepared pans.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) about 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove to a rack to cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on a rack completely.
